Coming out of the closet/confessing a crush? To Tracer, Zarya, Mercy, Widowmaker and Pharah. TY!
I tried to make these really light hearted and fun. Coming out can be so stressful, and is usually not a fun experience. I wrote these with all positive reactions, because there is nothing wrong with being gay/bi/pan/queer. If it was a perfect world, we wouldn’t even have to come out. Since we do, I want it to be a celebration. Sorry for the rant. These are all gonna be really silly and happy. Enjoy!
“How did you realize you were gay?” You ask Lena, genuinely interested. You had been questioning some things yourself, but you wanted to be sure.
“Well,” Lena begins to answer, “I guess I just sort of always knew. Ya know? I never was really into boys, but I couldn’t figure out why. Then I realized it was because I like girls. It made so much sense.”
You think about her answer for a long while.
“Lena….” You begin to say. You’re unsure of how to tell her.
“You’re gay?” She finishes your sentence for you.
“Yes! How did you know?” You ask, completely surprised.
Lena just laughs and pulls you into a big hug. “I’ve seen you look at girls, love. There’s no way you’re straight.”
You drag yourself to the gym on base. You have to get your work out in for today, even though you’re really not in the mood. As you walk into the gym, you see Zarya in the middle of her work out. She’s weight lifting, of course. You can’t help but stare. Everyone admires Zarya’s arms, but to actually see her flexing and lifting weights was stunning You can feel your jaw drop as you watch her.
“I am so gay” You say to yourself quietly.
You hear a loud chuckle. Looks like someone heard you. She looks over at you with a big smile on her face. She glances up and down your body.
“I am too.” She states. You feel your cheeks go red as you both crack up laughing.
Today was the day. You were going to ask Dr. Ziegler out. You’ve had a crush on the beautiful doctor since you could remember. You walk into the medbay to find the doctor busy doing paperwork. “Hello, doc.” You call out. Her eyes light up when she looks at you. She flashes you a bright smile and you wonder if she actually is an angel.
“It’s good to see you.” She says, smile still bright on her face. You feel yourself growing more and more nervous. She’s so beautiful, is it even possible she’d like you back?
“Angela. I gotta tell you something.” You start to say. “I, um. I think you’re so beautiful. and uh, I enjoy spending time with you…” You stopped mid sentence. You sounded like such an idiot! Panicking, you look up at Angela. Her smile is even more radiant than before. She leans up and places a light kiss to you cheek.
“I’d love to go out with you.” She replies.
Do you wanna know the worst part of being stationed at Watchpoint Gibraltar? The shared shower. There is no privacy. You usually try to go early in the morning before everyone else gets in there. You hate getting up so early, but it’s worth it for the privacy. However, it looks like you weren’t early enough this morning. You walk into the showers to find one already occupied by a certain beautiful French woman. You know you shouldn’t stare, but you can’t look away. You’ve had a crush on her for the longest time now. She’s the most beautiful woman you’ve ever seen. Now seeing her like this, she is just stunning. You look back up to see her staring at you. Busted. You immediately start apologizing. She just smiles and interrupts you, “Hush, chéri. Why don’t you come join me?”
The bartender placed two cocktails in front of you and Pharah. It had been a long, boring day of nothing but meetings. She had suggested the two of you go out and unwind. You were both enjoying your drinks while the other woman told you stories about her days in the Egyptian military. Your nice night was interrupted by a very drunk man swaggering over.
“Hey ladies.” He slurred. “You look lovely tonight.”
“Thanks.” You said, sounding angry. He was disgusting.
“How about you ladies head on home with me? I have enough to take care of you both.” He said, gesturing to his pants.
“Get lost.” Pharah said. He started to object, but she stood up. She was at least a foot taller than the man, and he got the idea to leave before she punched him.
“Damn. I am so happy I date girls.” You said. Then you remembered. Pharah didn’t know you were gay. You looked up at her, completely panicked. She just smiles at you and replies, “I am too. Guys can be such idiots. Girls are so much better.”
